Who can be helped by medical cannabis?
Patients with acute health conditions that are life threatening. Cannabis has been shown to provide symptom relief for many patients and, for some, actual improvement in severe life-threatening health challenges.
Patients with chronic health issues.
Many patients find that symptoms of chronic health concerns are quelled by cannabis, without the negative side effects of other medications.
Patients with sporadic health issues or injuries. Cannabis is also found to be efficacious for many common symptoms, such as pain, anxiety, difficulty sleeping, nausea, etc.
Health-conscious individuals who want to stimulate their body’s internal healing system with a regular maintenance dose of cannabis. Cannabis helps modulate or balance every human physiological system, including regulating immunity, inflammation, neurotoxicity, blood pressure, appetite, gastrointestinal function, and intraocular pressure. Therefore, many health-conscious individuals desire a small maintenance dose of medical cannabis to promote health and wellbeing.
Clearing Up the Confusion Around Medical Marijuana ... The world of medical marijuana is filled with unfamiliar terminology, numerous types of cannabis products to choose from, and very little specific direction on the best options for each patient. One has to be discerning and at least somewhat knowledgeable in order to sift through the mounds of information that is presented as "truth" in books, articles and the Internet—a great deal of which is outdated, inaccurate, or biased.
Most people tend to think of medical marijuana as one specific medicine, which gets you high, when in reality each strain of cannabis is, in some ways, a different medicine from every other strain. Treatment options now include non-psychoactive (no "high"), smokeless, and topical forms and formulations of cannabis, with many new strains continually being created and bred for their specific healing qualities.
I wrote TheMedical Marijuana Handbook to answer your questions, soothe your concerns, and give you the information you—or a family member or friend—need in order to make informed decisions and effectively use medical marijuana. I literally walk you by the hand through all that you need to know, drawing not only from my own experience and research, but from interviews I’ve conducted with health professionals, medical cannabis experts, and other patients. I’ve worked hard to make sure this information is as up-to-date and accurate as possible. Even if you know a lot about cannabis, so much is changing that there’s a good chance you’ll find many new-to-you facts in my book.
